Angry Young Man

out on a ride today, but 4km in and a bloody stick jamms into my rear derraliur and bends it somehow, had to walk my bike all the way back to my car, which made me mildy angry. To add to it had magpies swooping me the whole way. A bad day for BRK.

A question though, i know its hard to tell without pics but the thing that moves across when you chnage gear is bent, and i can no longer change up or down. Are these noramlly an easy fix? Or am i up for some $ for a new one?

Again, a bad day for BRK!

HAHA

That's awesome dude!

I live down in Mulgrave. Actually went for a ride up around Churchill park just before.

PM me if you ever want to meet up at Lysterfield and go for a ride

If the derailleur hanger is bent, you should be able to tell. I searched "bent derailleur hanger" on google and got some imaged, such as


edit: oh, and derailleur hangers are relatively cheap. Just make sure you find the right one for your frame. Derailleur hangars on the other hand...

Sorry to hijack your thread once more, but may I ask what bike shop you go to?
